Skipped the David Byrne concert because I'm trying to conserve cash at the moment. However, I went to the Extra Action Marching Band's afterparty at the Comet, and it was basically a great time. The XAMB is a great band. They've wrapped more cheerleading and dancers into their act than the other similar bands I've seen, and they have a different feel in an enclosed space because of it.

This is the first time I've ever seen them off the playa, and then versus the usual comet crowd versus the david byrne fans versus the other folks who got drawn in versus the bachelorette party was an interesting environment. The enthusiasm of the show let alone the cheerers and marshalls on top of all the tables and bars pretty much devastated the Comet, and I can't tell you how great a time I had despite currently being in the process of doing exactly that.

Also, David Byrne can *really* dance. You get that feeling watching him on stage or in videos, but being a couple of feet from him and watching him just bip along to the music is *inspiring.*
